Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-6. Kennedy does an excellent job of gathering various Easter traditions and customs and presenting them in a useful manner for children. She begins with the Resurrection story from Luke and then describes pre-Christian spring festivals whose traditions became merged with Easter. She handles this topic with sensitivity, noting that "Early Christians often embraced the names and customs of ancient holidays so that it would be more comfortable for other people to accept and believe in Christianity." Clear, well-chosen color photographs and historical drawings illustrate myriad familiar Easter symbols, both secular and religious: eggs, rabbits, palm branches, and lambs, as well as traditions such as the Easter parade. A handy volume for holiday shelves. ~--Ilene Cooper"
